About East Coast Datacom, Inc

East Coast Datacom, Inc. is a customer oriented, high technology enterprise which was formed in 1994 to design, manufacture and support Wide Area Network Equipment. We manufacture the broadest line of Network Emulators in the network test equipment market supporting over 18 different interfaces for Serial, Telco and Ethernet.

For Ethernet, the WanRaptor™ Network Emulator allows users to test and stage critical network equipment adding network latency, loss, Jitter and re-ordering impairments. For Serial data and Telco the RDS-PLUS delay simulator is a modular, network link error and delay emulator that provides a realistic simulation of physical network behavior with respect to time delays and bit errors.

We also manufacture an extensive line of legacy network equipment critical to the military, government and Fortune 500 companies. These include data broadcast splitters, digital sharing devices, interface converters and many other network adapters. Our highly respected Sync2IP Converter is a unique solution for Sync data to IP conversion as we support any sync data protocol.

We hope you enjoy our collection of products we present on our web site. Keep in mind we can modify or design a new solution for your unique application.

Data Broadcast Units



Great for Radar Data Distribution


Features / Benefits

  • Interface - EIA RS-232, DB-25 Female Connectors
  • Data Rates - Sync or Async to 128Kbps
  • Visual Indication of Data/Clock Activity
  • Receive Data, Clock and Optional Control Signal Broadcast to all Subchannels
  • Redundant Cascading via Latching Relays
  • Surge Suppression on all RS-232 Data Interfaces and Power Supply
  • Ideal for V-SAT Data/Clock Broadcasting
  • Sturdy Metal Enclosur
  • 110/220VAC Switch Selectable


The East Coast Datacom RS-232 data broadcast unit, model DBU-2328 is designed for use in RS-232 receive only data broadcast applications. Examples of typical data broadcast applications are; Continuously updated public data displays and distribution of continuous data to Routers, PC's or receive only printers.

The expanding role of V-SAT systems in receive only applications for real time data distribution is expected to increase dramatically over the next several years. The DBU-2328 is an excellent choice for applications of this type or any RS-232 simplex data distribution.

The DBU-2328 utilizes an RS-232 interface with data rate capabilities up to 128Kbps. The unit supports up to eight receive only terminals simultaneously. Surge protection is provided for all RS-232 data interfaces and the power supply input.

The DBU-2328 continuously broadcasts receive data, receive timing and an optional control signal(DCD) from the data source to the eight output terminal ports. Each data port has independent drivers and receivers for transmission.

The DBU-2328 supports cascading multiple units together from a single data source for multiple outputs. The unit has a redundant cascade port that utilizes positive latching relays. If a single unit looses power, all remaining units will continue to function without error.

The DBU-2328 is housed in a sturdy aluminum enclosure and is supplied with an internal linear power supply. The unit has a 110/120 VAC rotary select switch located on the rear of the housing. The unit can operate on standard power found in all countries.

The DBU-2328 has a three year warranty and a 24 hour turnaround on warranty repairs.
